Richard B. Skinner, CPA
Richard manages Stephano Slack’s Audit and Assurance practice, where he takes the lead on client engagements and is responsive to client timeframes and inquiries. Tasked with ensuring smooth engagements and helping clients meet their goals, Richard wields his technical experience to adequately and thoroughly explain complicated rule changes in GAAP bulletins to clients and help them understand its impact on their business so they can plan as far in advance as possible.
His keen understanding of his role and scope of work makes him conscientious and dependable, working closely with his clients towards their success and inspire confidence in their key stakeholders.
